If you have been an abbey customer then you would have been bombarded with stuff telling you that they are now Santander. No "research" required.

That's not really the problem; if I used to be with Abbey then I'd recognise their old domain anyway. But what if I'm a brand new Santander customer - would they bombard me with stuff saying "We used to be called Abbey National"?

If you were a new Santander customer then everything you see would now be Santander, not Abbey/Abbey National.

No, you don't - that's my whole point! As I said in the post above, here is the link for the secure login page on the Santander website:
https://myonlineaccounts2.abbeynational.co.uk/CentralLogonWeb/Logon?action=prepare

Note that the domain there is "abbeynational.co.uk" rather than "santander.co.uk". So, as a new customer, should I be concerned that a completely different website is asking for my bank password?
